concentrated and very sedentary. so about 10% of all the people in the united states own about 80% of the guns. they're mostly middle class, middle-aged people living in rural areas, and they hold on to their guns for a long time. on the other hand, most of the people engaged in crime are teens and young adults. one of the -- and most criminal careers are short. and so one of the things that that means is that there's always a new generation of young people who are troying to solve the problem -- who are trying to solve the problem fresh of getting their hands on guns. and i think one way that you could think about the challenger here or the situation here is you could think about the united states being just like a giant bathtub filled with 300 million guns. we don't need to worry about the entire tub, we just feed to worry about -- we just need to worry about the drain, trying to divert the guns away from the high-risk hands. the one other thing that i want to mention for the conversation right now is we have a bunch of stuff going on at the federal level, and we have a bunch of states tryin
to really take the lead against the terrorists in northern mali. . this is hard. if the united states comes in and does something on her own, nobody can match us in military assets and prowess, but a lot of the challenges we face are not immediately or sustainbly solved by military action alone, therefore, we have to get countries in the region to increase their border security and increase their counterterrorist efforts inside their own boards. we have a lot to do now in west africa. so i think you're right to point out, the united states has to play a role, but it needs to be part of a multi lateral effort in order to have a chance at success. >> thank you, madam secretary. we have discussed many important issues. i remain concerned about whether the accountability review board captured the full picture of what happened, but i think we can agree to work together moving ahead to improve security in a number of different areas. this hearing now stands adjourned.

senator who became president of the united states, and there was all of this high expectation for him which his aides will tell you that was a problem because they could never live up to the expectations. if you look at barack obama in that picture, it was sort of like, okay, let's do this, let's get to work. i have a lot i need to do. i'm thinking about what i've got to do over the next four years. very realistic. somebody who's established a real working relationship with his vice president. and i just think it's somebody who's sort of grown into that job and is ready to cement his legacy. whether that will be able to happen or not -- if you get health care reform in your first term and maybe immigration in the second, maybe that's as transformational as anybody can expect to be. >> do you think different man than he was four years ago? >> number one, in the bigger historical context, it is now common, it was rare in our history to have successive two-term presidents. is he different? this is a validation for him personally. when he won election four years ago, he made history as th
you screw it up buddy. it was about unit. the left and center are much better at national unity than the right. the right sees a national tragedy like this far off in bengha benghazi, not in new york city, at a very exposed position which could have happened no matter how many troops he would there. we don't blame it on everybody even know it was new york right into the heart land. i think there's a difference in how people react. i think the left was much more nationalistic. how is that for a statement? thank you ne. ra and ron reagan. it's funny it's is frick yin true. >>> john boehner sass the president was to annihilate the gop. maybe if republicans weren't in a perpetual war with african-americans, latinos, women, and young people politically at least they wouldn't to worry about being annihilated. >>> also the pentagon officially lifted the ban on women in combat today. in reality women have already been in combat for some time, certainly exposed to enemy fire as tammy duckworth can attest to. >>> everyone agrees now is the best time to two decades to push for gun safety laws.
of the foreign policy of the united states and destructive of this country's historic alliance with their strongest middle east ally, israel. host: why did you call them -- what you call him socks? others call him neutral. caller: when he says you should talk with hamas, a terrorist regime, that officially is classified as a terrorist organization by the united states, when he proposes to engage with hamas, that as being soft on terrorism. when he refuses to take a position against hezbollah, as he did, i say that as being soft on hezbollah, which is also a well-recognized terrorist organization. i say he is soft on iran, the positions he has taken have been positions that would undermine our attempts to prevent iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. host: less mature -- let me get your reaction to the opinion section of "usa today" -- caller: i think obama paused val has to be carried out. i think he should have a secretary of defense who is not taking a contrary position. host: other challenges ahead for the defense secretary, whoever that may be -- this is "u.s. aid today" --
in mind if they are very concentrated and very sedentary. 10% of all people in the united states on about 80% of the guns. they're mostly middle-class, middle-age people in rural areas and hold onto their guns for a long time. on the other hand, most of the people engaging crying our teens and young adults in most criminal careers are short. one of things that means if there's a new generation of young people trying to solve the problem fresh and getting their hands on guns and one way you could take about the challenge here, the situation here is if you think about the united states being like a giant bathtub with 300 million guns, but nothing to worry about the entire town. just a few million guns changing hands every year and trying to divert them away from the high risk. the other thing i like to mention that the conversation right now is a bunch of stuff going on the federal level and a bunch of states to innovate on their own. one of the things important to keep in mind the slow side from hawaii, no state is an island. every state is doing on the gun regulations that is relevant in
to these questions, the american people deserve them, including why the president of the united states after alleging in a debate with mitt romney, said that he had called it a terrorist act when in fact he hadn't. in fact that same day he did an interview with cbs news saying he didn't know what happened. probably two weeks later, he told various news programs he didn't know what was the cause of it. we knew what the cause of it was. we knew that people don't bring r.p.g.'s and mortars to spontaneous demonstrations. so we -- smor us -- some of us will not give up on this despite what some in the media think we should do until we get all the answers. i was hanging on every word you were saying, john. i happened to glance at my apps, here's a bbc news reports. -- report. it says the u.n. says numbers of syrian refugees arriving in jordan putting a considerable strain on the resources. the u.n. h.c.r. said that more than 26,500 refugees have crossed into jordan since january 1. officials said up to 3,000 were arriving every day and 50,000 were waiting to cross. that happens to be the camp that we visit

states no blue states, this is the united states of america. when you think of his inaugural address, there wasn't one line that crystallized or captured the nation. from a republican perspective it would be wonderful to hear some sort of harkening of tone, some kind of outreach or olive branch to the right and unifying the country. >> at that point, remember, there was this huge fiscal crisis he was facing so he won on all this hope, and then he gets into the job and remember, he really started before he started. and he was dealing with that terrible fiscal crisis so his inaugural speech -- and you're right, was sort of down almost, kind of these are the challenges we face. and now he has that opportunity, as you say, to raise expectations a little bit because people's expectations -- >> does it matter what he says in the speech as opposed to what he does afterwards? >> it does you're saying. >> oh, yeah. because it sets the tone. the real issue, if he does have a new tone does he stick to it or two days later back to the wars? >> almost all these speeches do have lines and there we
